Figuratively and literally, reading about Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs‘ re-release of his amazing single, “Household Goods,” this morning was music to my ears. A top track released on Greco-Roman in 2010, “Household Goods” (along with “Garden”) really put Orlando on the map, and 2 years later with a full LP under his belt, he’s put together an unbelievable new remix package for the original including new takes from Zinc, Mano Le Tough, Zed’s Dead, Lil Silva, and Enei. The release will be available on Beatport next week on August 6th before its worldwide release on Polydor on the 20th. Stream 4 of the remixes below. √+Continue Reading

When you see that a new Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs YouTube video has been posted, it’s always a good sign… This amazing cut was made in collaboration with ADAM, though it is unclear as to what he does or who he is exactly. The tune in the video, “American Dream Part II,” was named “Hottest tune in the world right now” by BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe last week and there is no arguing against that. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ debut album, Trouble, will be dropping on June 11th and it can’t come soon enough.
The long-awaited news regarding the release of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs‘ debut album has finally arrived as Orlando announced this morning that the full length, Trouble, will be out on Polydor Records ”on or around” June 11th. Trouble will feature 14 original productions including ‘Garden,’ ‘Household Goods,’ ‘Trouble,’ and his latest single ‘Tapes & Money,’ and Orlando will be hitting the road on a global tour commencing today in Germany and running until mid-September.

Last March in Miami during WMC, I had the pleasure of playing alongside soft-spoken T.E.E.D. at a couple gigs. His live show was spectacular, and his DJ sets were some of the most forward sounding that I had heard during the entire conference. Plus, I’m pretty sure I remember fetching him a gin & soda. Or was it gin & tonic? Regardless, he announced today a UK tour which commences the 2nd of February in Cardiff. He’s also giving away a gorgeous track called ‘Dream On’, which is so wonderfully produced that I’m surprised it isn’t on a forthcoming EP.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs was one of my favorite acts this year at Hard Haunted Mansion here in Los Angeles. His highly acclaimed productions and unprecedented performance techniques converge to create an experience that really can’t be matched, and I was thoroughly impressed as usual as I saw him do his dinosaur thang. Yesterday, I saw that Orlando posted a new remix to his SoundCloud, and to be honest, I didn’t know what to expect when I saw that it was for Lady Gaga‘s ‘Marry The Night.’ After listening to it for about the 10th time since yesterday, I thought it might be good to share with you good folks. Keep an eye out for the release on December 6th. √++
It’s a cloudy Monday here in Los Angeles, but it pleases me to think about the Halloween festivities that will be taking place this weekend. Anyway, I have news on the Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs documentary, The 2 Bears debut album, Paul van Dyk’s visual show, and the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival 2011. Check out the stories and a perfect tune for the morning after the jump…
August bank holiday weekend is always a highlight in a music savvy Londoner’s diary. It’s the one weekend in the summer where the capital takes its partying to new levels with Notting Hill Carnival, and a host of other events scattered around the city. For South-West London, the weekend is now known for the annual SW4 Festival, an integral massive in the dance music calendar boasting an impressive lineup across two days. We were there last Sunday to check it out.
